Today is the release date for a brand new Pavarotti DVD entitled Pavarotti Plus. This is the entire Pavarotti Plus concert from Royal Albert Hall in London in 1995.
The complete title of this release is Pavarotti Plus 20th Anniversary Edition. Previously available on Decca VHS this reissue is indeed very welcome!
Pavarotti is joined by several of his opera colleagues together with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Leone Magiera. Pavarotti sings arias and duets, and there are also several numbers where his colleagues sing without him.
Previously the complete concert was issued on a double CD and all the numbers which Pavarotti sang was issued on a single CD (both on Decca). Both CD editions are no longer available, so reissues are in order. At least all the Pavarotti numbers should be included in a future volume of The Luciano Pavarotti Edition.
